Chimaira River

Posted on February 12, 2008

Have you been missing Chimaira? Fear not, for they return soon in June for a mighty tour with Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, and God Forbid! And with a tour, comes new music! We are pleased to inform you we will be releasing a brand new Chimaira single to coincide with the tourdates. Chimaira’s new single is a cover of the infamous Justin Timberlake song ‘Cry Me A River’ – and the most surprising thing about that is that the song even features Justin himself on some of the lead vocals! Mark Hunter explains… “Well, everybody loves Justin don’t they? Even Joey (Slipknot) was telling me recently that he’s a fan and went to see him in concert! When we were on tour with Machine Head, I walked into their tour bus and found Dave shimmying around the bus dancing to it! We thought it’d be a really fun cover to do, and when Justin found out about it, he got in touch to tell us what a big fan he was and suggested we put it out together. We were totally blown away!” We were so stunned at the news that even Dave & Joey liked Justin (no doubt you are too), that we interrupted Joey on the new Jagermeister tour in the US (& caught Dave online) for a quick interrogation (because you would, wouldn’t you) and … Joey (Slipknot): “Justin’s the man… he’s totally got it going on! His album rules!” Dave (Machine Head): “I always knew Chimaira were huge N’Sync fans so it’s good to see them getting back to their roots and covering a Justin Timberlake song. I reckon they should do a video of Justin exposing Mark’s breasts just like he did with Janet Jackson!” We managed to get Mark Hunter to give up one of the promo shots from the forthcoming single artwork – tailored to include the new one-off vocalist, which you can see HERE.
